After a week of teasing you with the delicious results from my experiments with Ginger Lemon Girl’s Gluten-Free Slow Cooker cookbook, I’m finally going to share a recipe!
I decided to go with the Maple Pumpkin Spice Lattes because it’s such a tasty and fall-appropriate recipe, plus I have to admit I’m pretty proud of the muffin recipe I made up to go with it, also shared below.
Maple Pumpkin Spice Lattes
by Ginger Lemon Girl, from the everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook (shared with author permission)
- 2 cups very strong coffee or espresso
- 4 cups whole milk
- 3/4 cup plain pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
In a 4-quart slow cooker whisk together all ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 hours or on low for 3 hours. When serving, turn slow cooker to the warm setting for up to 2 hours. Serve warm.
My notes – I did a half recipe in a 1.5 quart slow cooker, on low for 2 hours
Once you’ve made the lattes, you can try my muffin recipe!
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Latte Muffins
Makes 8 muffins
- 1 3/4 cup Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 cup maple pumpkin spice latte
- 2 tbsp plain pumpkin puree
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
Whisk together the baking mix, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. In a separate bowl, whisk together the latte, pumpkin puree, butter and vanilla, then add to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined, then add the walnuts.
Bake at 350 for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. For mini muffins, reduce baking time to 15 minutes.
To reheat, just pop in the toaster oven – I enjoyed a nice hot muffin with my usual breakfast smoothie, great treat to start my Monday!
